Possible UFO sightings are likely balloons.

This is not a UFO report, but rather an explanation of objects observed on this evening, which may be reported by many as UFO's. I observed the lights and had planned on reporting them here, but failed to do so. When I went to work, a fellow employee mentioned an event which he attended where luminaria's were launched in balloons the same evening I observed the lights. The balloons drifted quite a distance at approximately 1-2 miles altitude.
